Hi, I am Sally Akins! This is my food, beauty and lifestyle blog for women over 40 who love making the most of life.
In these pages, there are all sorts of recipes, reviews, and information about food, beauty and lifestyle. I publish at least 5 new posts each week, and I’m sure you’ll find something to interest you.
I live in lovely rural Shropshire, and generally keep myself busy looking after my family. Two teenage sons and a Chihuahua called Charlie take up a lot of my time! If this is your first visit to SallyAkins.com, then get yourself a drink and make yourself comfy.
Looking for something to cook? You’ll find a whole host of recipes from quick mid-week lunches to relaxed slow cooking weekend dinners. If you’re in search of something sweet, then I have got some fab cakes, bakes and puddings for you to try out. And if you want a recipe for a special occasion, I’ve got that covered as well.
Do you love trying new beauty products? Me too! You’ll find reviews on everything from foundation to mascara, skin and hair care to the latest beauty gadgets. Since I turned 40 I have definitely noticed that my skin and hair need a little more care, and I’m happy to share with you the tips that I’ve picked up along the way.
You’ll also find all sorts of lifestyle posts, from reviews of the latest books to travel tips, home inspiration and events. If you’re interested in setting up a blog of your own, then check out my ‘Blog Tips’ posts for helpful hints. And I love giving away prizes, so you’ll usually find at least one giveaway running each month.
I hope you’ll enjoy reading my blog – please do leave me a comment if you do. I love reading your comments and try to answer as many as I can.
